Psalm 77
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

In My Distress I Sought the Lord

For the choir director. According to [†]Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A Psalm.

1My voice rises to God, and I must cry aloud;

My voice rises to God, and He will hear me.

2In the day of my distress I sought the Lord;

In the night my hand was stretched out [†]without weariness;

My soul refused to be comforted.

3I remember God and I am disturbed;

I muse and my spirit faints. [†]Selah.

4You have held my eyelids open;

I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

5I give thought to the days of old,

The years of long ago.

6I remember my music in the night;

I am musing with my heart,

And my spirit is searching:

7Will the Lord reject evermore?

And will He not be favorable again?

8Has His lovingkindness ceased forever?

Has His [†]word ended [†]from generation to generation?

9Has God forgotten to be gracious,

Or has He in anger shut up His compassion? [†]Selah.

10Then I said, “It is my [†]grief,

That the right hand of the Most High has changed.”

11I shall remember the deeds of Yah;

Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.

12I will meditate on all Your work

And muse on Your deeds.

13O God, Your way is holy;

What god is great like God?

14You are the God who works wonders;

You have made known Your strength among the peoples.

15You have by Your arm redeemed Your people,

The sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.

16The waters saw You, O God;

The waters saw You, they were in anguish;

The deeps also trembled.

17The clouds poured out water;

The skies gave forth a sound;

Your arrows went here and there.

18The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind;

The lightnings lit up the world;

The earth trembled and shook.

19Your way was in the sea

And Your paths in the mighty waters,

But Your footprints were not known.

20You led Your people like a flock

By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
